    Just to let anyone out there know that my Dad Ernie King passed away yesterday after a long illness. I am sure anyone that knew him in the Banding world would like to know of his passing as he was well known to a lot of you for his musical arrangements and his knowledge and past army playing and teaching of young musicians

    Kind Regards

    Dads funeral will be on Saturday 27th March at Telford Crem if anyone wishes to attend they will be most welcome

    Roger I am having your arrangement of Evening Hymn and Last post played at the end of the service I know Dad liked that and I have a recording of it by his old regiment the Prince of Wales Divsion so thought it would be most apt

    Kind Regards

    So sorry to hear about Ernie. I met him many times with the late Murray Slater. He did some super arrangements for Matlock Band in years gone by. Condolences to his family.

    So sorry to hear about Ernie. I played with him in a few bands in Telford and I think Wem. He was a really good friend. He gave me lots of confidence as a young player. I especially liked is sense of humour. In fact I named my Cornet after him 15 years ago.

    I will be thinking of him this weekend as I take the stage in the London and Southern Areas Championship Section.
